Efficient and Effective

Partner Paul Sheng and his associate Mary Kate O’Neill recently obtained a voluntary dismissal with prejudice on behalf of a restaurant owner defendant in a premises liability case filed in San Francisco County Superior Court. The Plaintiff alleged that she suffered severe injuries to her hamstring and knee, including a three-tendon proximal hamstring rupture after she fell while walking across a polished concrete surface. The injury required surgical repair, and Plaintiff claimed over $70,000 in lost income and earning capacity. Paul’s team filed a concise Motion for Summary Judgment demonstrating that the floor was not a dangerous condition. The day before the arbitration hearing, Plaintiff dismissed the case in exchange for a waiver of costs.
